When I am working with the .Net developers,there arise a situation to insert a value into the Identity column.I think most most of the developers know this answer because most people come around the situation and the solution is
SET IDENTITY_INSERT table_name ON –setting here that we are going
— to insert a explicit value – to the the identity column
Note: A very interesting thing is that we can set this command to only one table at a time in a Database. If we want to use it for another table, we have to add SET IDENTITY_INSERT table_name OFF to the existing table where the identity insert is on.
